If you’ve been around this website for longer than a few weeks, you should know by now that my favorite carry pistol ever is the Glock 27. It’s reliable, comfortable to carry, and it goes bang every time I pull the trigger. In fact I love it so much, I bought another.
First, I’m very picky when choosing a firearm to carry concealed. If it hasn’t worked 100% of the time, I won’t carry it. It instantly becomes a range gun and that’s it. Some will say that I’m too tough with this personal rule and that’s fine, but I’m never going to change it. To me, 100% confidence in a firearm means that it’s always worked 100% of the time.
The reason that I have two Glock 27’s is this: If I ever need to use one in self-defense, there’s a very good chance that I won’t see that firearm for a while as it will likely be taken for evidence. Typically, you’ll be waiting months (if not years) to get your firearm back from the police. So, why not have a backup of your favorite carry firearm?
The point here is to not necessarily have a twin firearm, but at least be sure that you own two reliable firearms that you can carry because if one is unavailable for whatever reason, you have the other to fall back on with confidence.
